1Refining Crude OilThe cat-cracking process breaks up heavier fuels. Diesel fuel and heating oil are the product of severe catalytic cracking and want to change back into something heavier.Heat from an engine accelerates the production of solids - gums, varnishes and sludge's that will plug filters, strainers, nozzles, and injectors. 93% of what clogs filters is re-polyermerization of the fuel.ProOne Fuel Maximizer addresses these issues ..
2ProOne Fuel Maximizer is a Fuel Catalyst (Diesel and HFO) Reduces EmissionsReduces Maintenance CostsReduces Fuel ConsumptionCleans the Fuel SystemAdds Lubricity to Diesel FuelsIncreases BTU’s of the FuelDecreases Oxidation of Diesel FuelImproves Performance2
4How it WorksBreaks down large fuel particles so the fuel burns more efficientlyLowers the temperature at which soot burns.Accelerates the combustion rate of hard-to-burn hydrocarbon moleculesDramatically reduces ash and unburned carbon in the exhaust systemMore efficient combustion which produces more energy and less emissions per unit of fuel burned.4
5Regular Fuel Treatments Most Fuel Treatments are made of:SulfurHydrogenCarbonNitrogenOxygen.. the exact same constituents as fuel so all you are doing is changing the % (percent) of product the fuel is made up of.Fuel treatments with these 5 ingredients do not have to get EPACertification for approval.Over 50,000 fuel treatments on the market, but very few are designed to make fuel better. ProOne Fuel Maximizer is designed to make fuels more efficient.5
6What Makes Fuel Maximizer Different ? Captures more of the energy of the fuel, allowing an increase inPower, Efficiency and Cleanliness.Is EPA, OTAQ, and ETV tested.Has been tested at world-renowned South West Research Institute for fuel economy, emissions and manufacture (OEM) acceptability.Has been proven to work with BioDiesel applications. B20 biodieselmixture has been tested with the product and has proven reduction in NOx particulates as well as Nox gases.Is very effective in Diesel and Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) applications.6

10Cummins L10 Injector Depositing Test BACKGROUNDCummins had a field problem that occurred in fleet operating in hilly terrains or stop and go traffic. In this duty cycle, significant injector deposits developed that led to a noticeable decrease in engine power. Cummins developed a test method to simulate these duty cycles and duplicate the deposits in the laboratory. This test can be used to discriminate fuel/fuel additive quality. (Reference SAE Paper No ).

33Automotive Diesel Applications Maximizes Complete CombustionFrom passenger car to light trucks, Fuel Maximizer maximizes power & economy for diesel applications. With fuel prices in a constant flux, Fuel Maximizer helps today's new generation of electronically controlled, low emission, high speed, high horsepower diesel engines by ensuring complete combustion while reducing emissions.33
34Over the Road Diesel Applications Get more Productivity from your FleetToday we have a new generation of electronically controlled, low emission, high speed and high horsepower diesel engines. The reason for this new technology is the need for diesel engines to meet the clean air acts of 1998, 2002 & They are accomplishing this by using electronic injectors and by changing the diesel fuel we are presently burning.Fuel Maximizer helps that diesel fuel burn more efficiently.34
35Transit Diesel Applications Clean, Soot Free BussesFuel Maximizer saves transit companies thousands of dollars in fuel consumption and maintenance costs and, at the same time, reduces exhaust emissions. Incomplete combustion leads to problems in bus engines, including soot formation, carbon deposits, black smoke and corrosion. Transit and owner operators can reduce soot formation, extend maintenance intervals, and reduce the need for major component overhauls by using Fuel Maximizer.35
36Industrial applications include Construction Equipment, Mining, Agriculture, Oil Drilling, Off Shore Drilling, Generation units and more. The EPA is proposing new emission standards for non-highway diesel engines used in construction, agricultural and industrial operations.Fuel Maximizer can help oil and gas developers reduce emissions while drilling in the mountains and oceans around the world and at the same time keep their diesel engines running cleaner and longer.36
37Mining and MarineImproves the combustion of all grades of heavy, residual fuel oils, translating into reduced fuel consumption, better boiler performance at reduced levels of excess air, less particulate emissions and reduced maintenance requirements. By eliminating soot and black smoke at the source, Fuel Maximizer HFO reduces carbon deposits and improves thermal efficiency of heat exchangers. Maintenance schedules can also be extended. Safe to use with all boilers.For standard grades of marine residual fuel oils, the recommended dosage rate of Fuel Maximizer HFO is 1: 5,000. During the first week of treatment, a higher dosage rate of 1:4,000 is recommended. For an initial treatment, include enough Fuel Maximizer HFO to dose the untreated fuel already in the fuel system and tanks, in addition to dosing the incoming delivery of fuel oil.37
38Is Fuel Maximizer Safe to Use? Consists of a non-toxic, organo-iron compound dissolved in aromatic solvent. The only elements in Fuel Maximizer are carbon, hydrogen and iron.Produces no harmful incremental emissions as a by-product, unlike many fuel additives.The only by-products of its combustion are carbon dioxide, water and iron oxides, all of which are harmless to humans.Should be handled using the normal precautions associated with any solvent or fuel.38
